Damascus : hidden treasures of the old city by Brigid Keenan ( Book )
17 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Damascus, reputed to be the worldʹs oldest continually inhabited city, has enjoyed a history of immense grandeur, enormous political and mercantile power, and great cultural and artistic achievement. In addition to some of Islamʹs most magnificent architecture, such as the Umayyad Mosque, the city boasts a heritage of fairy-tale palaces and sumptuous private houses. Sadly, many of them are in urgent need of restoration. Brigid Keenan and Tim Beddow were given unprecedented access to the inner, "hidden" city, which has resulted in a book that is of immense importance to all concerned with the heritage of architecture in the Islamic world. The superb photographs include façades, courtyards, alleyways and fountains, and the breathtaking interiors that often lie behind the unassuming walls of the old town, with exquisite details in stone, wood, paint, marble, plaster, glass and mother-of-pearl. The whole, published with the generous support of Wafic Rida Said, forms a convincing and elegiac plea for the preservation of the heart of this historic ancient capital. -- Jacket

Diplomatic baggage : the adventures of a trailing spouse by Brigid Keenan ( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Brigid Keenan was a glamorous, successful young London fashion journalist. But falling in love with a diplomat saw her leave behind the gift chairs of the Paris salons for a large chicken shed in the forests of Nepal. Thirty years later (at the farewell party for the Papal Nuncio in Kazakhstan), Brigid found herself wondering whether her decision had been the right one. This is her account of her life as a 'trailing spouse' - a tale of diplomatic protocol, difficult teenagers, homesickness, frustrated career aspirations, witch doctors and giant jumping spiders."--BOOK JACKET.
